The Playstation Brand /Console series celebrates its 20th Anniversary in December and i bet the most of you have some good memories of games on the first Playstation console.

From the first games on the console like RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRiiiiidge RRRRRRRRRRacer of the favourite games of Kaz Hirai ;)
and following hits like Tekken, Battle Arena Toshinden, WipeOut, Twisted Metal, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Metal Gear Solid and of course Gran Turismo to the last big hits like Resident Evil 3 in 1999 or Final Fantasy IX in 2000.

Every game can be claimed by up to 3 artists

This project started on the 25th October 2013, the absolute deadline is the 1st November 2014.

We got a ton of visitors for Link's Blacklist, and this Idea sounded to me like it could be an awesome art gallery as well and be a better choice than to organize something for multiple consoles.

List of games which could be part of a Playstation Tribute, you can also mention other games if you want to participate in this project with them. This is all about the games we played and loved through the PSX Era, and everyone prefers different games of course!

I'm ready :XD:

Gon has come

LauraGalliArt's avatar
I've finished it- in case I can still be included. In case it's not alright and I'm too late, don't worry. :)
Tribute- Legend of Dragoon- the Black Monster

Forgot- in case you need the high-res picture, I can send everything to you. Thank you and sorry again.
LauraGalliArt's avatar
I'm almost done ç__ç I'm also very sorry for the delay. Life and commission has drained life out of me. >_>
I'll have it done tomorrow or the day after tomorrow max. I'm also reminding Fenrir--the-2nd about his.
Nummonkee's avatar
hey, so here's mine, i'm so sorry for the delay!!! honestly, there were supposed to be six more characters in this but when i realized i wasn't going to finish i decided to do it in parts ;_;  since it's technically not even complete if you don't want to include it, i understand (i will change the description in that case, of course)
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
Better late than never, I will create the gallery for it this week. Please send me a note with your personal thoughts about Final fantasy Tactics, the characters you drew and the scene itself and also your thoughts about the first Playstation console and what it meant to you.

If you are going to change the image, I don't have a problem to update the article on game-art-hq as well!
Nummonkee's avatar
okay, will send soon! thanks a bunch.
EvilApple513's avatar
Hope you're doing well.

Here's my submission. Thank you!…
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
That looks excellent..but its really fun to see this game being claimed..its among other so much more popular games and I bet only like 5% of all visitors will even know about it, but thats what makes our community so different from others I believe.

Beside Spyro, Final Fantasy and Resident Evil, some other not so popular games like Loaded were drawn for the project as well :-)
EvilApple513's avatar
Indeed, I agree.
C-Puff's avatar
I finished it in time!! Yaaaay! :heart:
I've submitted it to the group's general sorting folder. I hope that was right :) Thanks for letting me be a part! I hope I've done well enough for you.
Grandia - Playstation 20 years on by C-Puff
AbelMvada's avatar
Done (finally)! And here it is - What folder should I submit it to? Confused 
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
Wow, from all the claimed games for the PSX Tribute your decision was really the most unsuspected one. I can almost not believe that this happened :-)

I just requested it for the right folder(s) , excellent work, I am impressed!
AbelMvada's avatar
Thank you very much! I'm so glad I finally got around to finishing this, and I'm very happy to have the opportunity to do something fun and slightly unusual.

Leonidas666's avatar
It is done Mylord!...but I cannot submit. Do not know why...
Here is the link…
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
Alrighty, I have a question though, I did not play Legacy of Kain Blood Omen completely, is that from a specific scene in the game and is Kain bare chested there at a time? (I remember him being in armor)
Leonidas666's avatar
To be honest I researched it on Google and in some parts of the game, some videos, and some other art, he does appears to be with just a "breast armor/shoulder pad" so to speak. So, I did him like this.
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
It looks awesome, was very surprising for me to see someone calling dibs on a Need for Speed game but thats great, we have a super big variation of artworks now in the tribute!
Nummonkee's avatar
so "absolute deadline" means there's no way it's getting pushed back, right? heh...this whole time i was thinking i had til the end of november instead of the beginning *sweats profusely*
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
The thing is, the whole project will be online in the first december week since the ps1 was released on the 7th december, I am creating the galleries right now for those submissions I have like… but hope I have all galleries done in the first november weeks, am also working on a Tekken Tribute

I can give you a deadline till the 20th November as exception
Nummonkee's avatar
oh, i see. thanks, i'll still try to finish by the first.
it's because i wanted to get my link costume done by halloween >_>
Llewxam888's avatar
I made this one for Tekken a while back, maybe I forgot to post it on here hahah

I'm a little tempted to do another one since there's some time left.
Reinhold-Hoffmann's avatar
Don't worry, seems like there are a lot submissions for the PSX Tribute, so far I have around 25 but around 20 more confirmations by artists that their pieces would be submitted this month

I could use a bit help for the Tekken anniversary tribute though, a lot of the more important characters were not yet drawn for that one, have a look

Tekken 20th Anniversary Art Tribute - Round 2!Hello,
you most likely know one or more of the Tekken games and played some of them :-)  The series started back in December 1994 already, and i thought that just like we did it for Doom last year and Super Metroid this year, we could celebrate this series with an art tribute.
The idea is to get many of the game characters like Marshall Law, Nina Williams, Ling Xiaoyu and of course Jin, Kazuya and Heihachi illustrated while they perform one of their most known moves.
King the wrestler doing his Drop Kick as example or Heihachi one of his big uppercut moves.

Jin Kazama, Eddy Gordo or Lei Wulong in one of their Tekken 3 or 5 outfits would be great
Puzzletoad's avatar
this is the tribute we were talking about earlier yah? Is the piece for BoF2 still good to go or is that for a different show?
